This Teen Couldn’t Find A Date To Prom So She Took Her Harvard Acceptance Letter Instead

Going to prom without a date might be a stressful experience in high school, but this teen decided to make the most of it and bring along something that really mattered to her — her Harvard acceptance letter.

That’s right, Priscilla Samey of Champlin Park High School didn’t need a guy to make her night because SHE’S GOING TO HARVARD, BABY.

Can we just all agree on how badass this is, though?

Who could’ve turned down someone this amazing, though? You guys are seriously missing out.

Though let’s be real, do you really need a man when you’re the first person from your high school to ever go to Harvard?

Priscilla may be going to Harvard, but it’s far from the only Ivy League school that made her list of places she was accepted into.

Priscilla, I may not know you, but I am so proud of you. I hope you get that prom photo of you framed so you can hang it right next to your diploma someday. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
